Welcome to the forum family from a swamp in Michigan. If you use the “google” search at the bottom of the page someone posted a simple wiring diagram that could be just what you need. Good luck with your project.

If that were the case, most swing arm bikes would be spitting chains/belts on a regular basis.

Ok so my engine should be in Montana tomorrow, then it is just a matter of time before I can go down there and pick it up along with the other parts I purchased along with it, (wiring harness, carb, etc.) Then start my build.... That being said I was also toying with the idea of changing cams and cam cover to an older version so I can use my Buell ignition system. ( this is just personal preferences that may or may not work, it also gets rid of more wiring and bits)

If you have a rubber mounted eng and a rigid swing arm pivot, under accel, the engine would be pulled rearward. This takes trans output/sprocket out of alignment with rear axle/sprocket. Hence, the spitting chains.

In the 90’s there was a guy named Roger Bourget. He was building high rent, flashy carnival ride type bikes for big dollars. We would build all of his engines. He brought by his new “Rubbermount” for us to see. He told me to ride it. I swear I made it 30 feet out of the shop and it spit the rear belt. The bike was exactly that. Although it was a big twin FXR/FLT type power plant, it was just that. An engine trans assemble just sitting on rubber blocks inside a rigid frame.
A true rubbermount hd has the eng/trans and swingarm tied together.

Funny thing is, there are rigid frames made for rubber mount engines available presently... Can you account for these?!
